Where do Kazoos Come From?

On a recent Geek Family vacation, we took a side trip to Kazoobie Kazoos in Beaufort, SC. We learned the history of the kazoo, how they are assembled and even got to make our very own kazoos. Come join us on our kazoo adventure.

While the kazoo is over 150 years old, Kazoobie Kazoos has been providing the world with plastic kazoos since 1999. The quirky instrument is molded in Florida, assembled in South Carolina, and then shipped to over 30 countries. Stephen Murray, CEO of America’s only plastic kazoo factory, enjoys telling people that he gets to “sell fun for a living.”

My boy can say the sweetest things.

“You make the best tacos mommy.”

“I love you to the stars and back again.”

He can also say some very scary things. They don’t seem scary on the surface but trust me, they are.

“Don’t worry mommy, I’ll make your hair look beautiful.”

“It’s ok mommy, it’s just a little poop.”

But one Saturday morning when he was about 2 ½ I heard a phrase that proved to be very scary. You see, he woke me when he ran in our room calling my name. He was excited about something and I was very tired. With my eyes closed I reached out toward him to try to determine what was going on. That’s when I discovered something odd. Continue reading

Walt Disney World – Hidden Vacation Gem

Join the Geek Family of 5 as we visit Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort. Our family was looking for a quick getaway and Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort offered us the perfect destination.

This deluxe island resort offers a relaxing family friendly stay in a rustic and beautifully themed resort. There are not any giant theme parks nearby, but Disney magic still fills the air as there are plenty of kid events and activities. There are also adult activities and Hilton Head Island is also world-renowned as a golfing destination.

We found crystal clear pools, great food, relaxing hammocks, and awesome Disney Cast members ready to make our vacation extra special. The resort offers studio, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom units and while it is actually a Disney Vacation Club property, non-members can book accommodations there.

This hidden Disney gem fits the bill for a relaxing, family friendly place to rest and recharge away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Come join us on this new Geek Family Adventure.
